You Roku streaming devices and players let you stream and watch both live and broadcast network. Today we have come up with a small three steps guide that will help you in enjoying the best of live and streaming TV. Let’s check out.
Do you love streaming movies and TV shows with your Roku streaming player or Roku TV, but also watch a lot of broadcast network channels? Depending on what you watch a Roku device, an over the air antenna, a Tablo OTA DVR combo might be the right choice for you.
Most people with cable or satellite watch only 20 out of 200 channels included in their subscription with Sunday Night football, the evening news, or their favorite network sitcom being their go to programming. What you might know is that you can also watch those programs on your Roku device live or later by combining an over the air antenna (OTA), an OTA DVR like Tablo and select streaming services, for less money and with more flexibility.
Find your favorite TV Shows
We live in an era of peak TV. It seems like there is a new buzzworthy show every week that can’t be missed.
94 out of the top 100 most watched prime time telecasts on TV last year are available absolutely free in full HD quality with an over the air Tv antenna. This includes HFL football, local and National newscasts, your favorite network TV dramas and sitcoms and live event specialists like the Oscars. You will need to find out which networks are available OTA in your area using the handy channel locator tool. With a Tablo OTA DVR and the Tablo Roku channel you can pause and rewind the live TV and record your favorite shows for later, all using your Roku remote.
Adding a cable style streaming services like Sling TV will get you the rest of your live Tv fix including access to ESPN, CNN, HGTV, and more for as little as $35 per month. Or if you are not interested in a cable style bundle, you can get some channels a la carte like HBO Now for as little as $15 per month.
Discover & Re Discover Even More TV
In addition to national broadcast networks like FOX, CBS, NBC, and ABC, in many cities your over the air antenna will deliver specialty content like classic TV movies and shows, educational programming and more on digital subchannels.
Some OTA subchannels like sci-fi focused Comet TV have even started streaming the content on a Roku channel absolutely free because of their popularity. Add some of Roku’s awesome free TV streaming channels like Crackle and Tubi TV and you will have access to more content that you could ever possibly watch.
Use one remote to rule them all
Roku devices make it easy to enjoy the best of live and recorded local TV with sports, Tablo, and specialty cable programs with the Sling TV channel and the rest of your favorites from a single user friendly home screen. That means there is no need to change inputs or fiddle with multiple remotes to switch between live Tv and streaming or to provide the babysitter with more instructions on how to work the TV than for your kids. You can even use the Roku mobile app for iOS and Android on your smartphone or tablet as a remote.
